Whirlwind Vegas, Less than 48 hours!

Went to Vegas for the opening of SLS, wow what a whirlwind, still trying to put the pieces together

Met some great folks and ate and drank like a rockstar

Started things off with a bang, LOL the airport of all places.  A little drink and DJ while you wait

OMG hot, hot hot.  It was 90 out and I was told that was cool for this time of the year


Our big night out decided to showcase a lovely Vancouver Designer, K-O.ME, isn't this silk wrap gorgeous

Before the real festivities began went for a toodle around.  Some of the eye candy that caught my fancy




Thank you Terry for spending the day with us Saturday and giving us a glance of everything in a nutshell

Went back to the SLS during the day for a different perspective.  Some features I really loved

The outside entrance, though completely redone, kept the original entrance design from the Sahara


The entry floor all lit up

Rock'n pool area

This super cool LED feature over the bar, best I've ever seen

Seriously met some great people by the pool, had a great time, in and out in 38 hours, gonna take me a week to sleep this off

Caution!!!!! only drink 1, whatever this was, rendered me out of commission

Blue on Blue?

Is there such a thing as too much of the same color?

When I was younger my sister was all matchy matchy, I thought it was silly.  Keep in mind she used to pay me to put make-up on me, she was determined I would look prettier.  I'm admittedly a late bloomer or vanity has kicked in, argh!!!!  Didn't really start to wear make-up until a couple of years ago.  Oh lord better warm up to 50, which is Right Around The Corner, no doubt I'll start to trowel the shit on!

I digress, is there such a thing as too much of the same color?  Maybe

I'm wearing:

Walmart Maxi
Payless Sandal
Faux RayBans

Bowen Island - West Coast Island Adventure

Oh my, what a day

Thought I was just going to my old stomping grounds Troll's in Horseshoe Bay for breakfast and a meet n greet with a new friend

Nope, much more than that, an impromptu invite for some Island fun!!! was AWESOME as Lego man would say

Some of this

More of this

Hmm, the sign says ...think they mean no tight rope walking

for someone that doesn't really drink, that I did

Decided to try to fit in and join the islanders for a friendly game

Grabbed a random child for a photo op, looks a little bewildered but all went well

Next stop Killarney Lake, beautiful and clear

Onto the OPA Tree - This ancient tree is over a thousand years old.  Bowen Island was clear cut at one time and for whatever reason OPA was spared, thankfully

We were happy to run into the curator of this fantabulous property, 5 acres of heaven on earth, visit their website for a great retreat idea Xenia Centre

Many people leave trinkets to show their appreciation, we also lit incense


off to the meditation sanctuary

 At the end of the day we ended up at the most beautiful house imaginable, for the sake of the owners privacy I did not take any pictures. Think Victorian mansion, Hobbit house with a little Beetlejuice peppered in for whimsy, take my word for it, incredible

Our chef spoiled us

back to the ferry and home again

As you can see we ate and drank like it was our last day, love love love adventures, thank you Richard
